When I factored Favors’ development, I wasn’t counting on Terrence Williams developing a chemistry with the big teddy bear. Williams’ game is raw, but it’s got such great daylight in between the cracks. Like this play. It’s not youth, it’s confidence. It’s not folly, it’s courage. Being willing to make that pass takes a certain type of player. Combine that with his athleticism and upside? Favors could feed off this kid’s energy to a ridiculous degree.
Farmar’s another one who really showed a lot in terms of working with the Nets’ bigs. Farmar worked with both Favors on his first bucket on a great drive and dish, and Brook Lopez. Lopez’ early first half pick and roll work was mostly Farmar, actually, and they killed it on that right wing.
Great start for the Nets.
AND YES, THAT MEANS BETTER THAN LAST YEAR WHICH COULD NOT HAVE BEEN WORSE.
